When I Said "I Do"...
Hi everyone!! So I spent a wonderful Saturday afternoon with my pal Jodi Collins (Stamping A Latte) for some much needed girls & stamping time! I had so much fun and this cute creation is one of the cards that came out of that time.
I made this card for my husband for our Anniversary which is May 1. I think it is just perfect as the laundry in our house always seems to be at max capacity, actually I have a load drying and washing right now!
I started with a card base of Old Olive, White and Chocolate Chip. My DP is Bloom & Grow by My Minds Eye. I thought the colors were so nice and could be used for a masculine card. My image is from a favorite set of mine, so thanks for letting me borrow Jodes, Loads of Fun by There She Goes.
I started by stamping the image with Tuxedo Black by Memento Ink and colored with Copics. Then I cute it out with a rectangle nesstie and bordered it with a scallop rectangle nesstie. I also paper pieced the boxer shorts. Now comes the AWESOME part...Jodi got that same afternoon her new Copic Airbrushing system and we airbrushed the sky- it was so much fun!! I used her bow maker to create the perfect bow with the chocolate chip ribbon and a nesstie tag for the sentiment and again airbrushed the tag to match the image. I hope my hubby likes this!!
